The week’s sweet spot will arrive on Thursday afternoon, when the Sun will trine Saturn and Venus will trine Jupiter. Its sour patch will fall on Saturday, when a Mars Pluto opposition will be squared by a blockbusting Aries Moon, in the wake of a Mercury Neptune square. Because Pluto is the outermost planet, the tension leading up to Saturday’s flashpoint will be building throughout the week. That said, the week is ultimately offering an opportunity to face the truth, starting under Monday’s whip-smart Aquarius Moon. Fact-finding, especially when it concerns previously hidden information, and consensus building among reasonable people are favored when the Moon trines retrograding Mercury and Venus in the late degrees of Gemini. The Disinfo Wars ensue in earnest on Tuesday, as soon as the Moon moves into Pisces. In its highest expression, Pisces is a sincere and soulful unifier. In its lowest, it is either genuinely confused or the manipulative and deliberately deceptive “victim”. At its best, journalistic Gemini is objective and rational. The Dark Twin however, can be a duplicitous backstabber, keen to peddle the most salacious gossip and self-serving fake news. Add the presence of amplifiers Jupiter and Neptune in Pisces to this mess, and the waters will remain muddy until midday on Thursday. Look for reliable news once the Moon moves into decisive Aries and the Gemini Sun trines discerning Saturn. During Wednesday’s Pisces Gemini befuddlement, Venus will slip into Cancer. From the soothing water sign, she will trine Jupiter on Thursday afternoon. This aspect brings a measure of calm to the equation, before the Aries Moon starts marshaling support from the Sun, Mercury and Saturn, in preparation for Saturday’s showdowns.
The week’s battle royale for narrative dominance is set for Saturday. That’s when a Mercury Neptune square will immediately be followed by the Moon/Mars/Pluto t-square. Mars is in Cancer, the home sign of the United States, and since early April, Pluto been crossing the exact degree and minute it was at on April 19, 1775, 26 Cap 41. This t-square will occur within minutes of that historic demarcation point, and it looks likely to break all juggernauts wide open. In 2021, the emboldened Aries Moon, ever-ready Mars and ruthlessly honest Pluto are conspiring to irrevocably interrupt all trips down that infamous river of De-Nile. It’s all par for the course during a Gemini Sun cycle that includes two eclipses, retrograding Mercury, Saturn and Pluto and June 14th’s Saturn Uranus square. Whether personal or political, astrology’s t-squares tell us that the time has come to deal with people, situations and matters that have reached a boiling point. Bearing that in mind, we can put this week’s events into perspective and act accordingly.
